Tea: If you don't like coffee, you can use tea bags instead. Just place 2-3 tea bags inside the confined space. The tea leaves in the bags will not only absorb the trash can smell but will also release the natural aroma of tea.
Many of the newer designed trash containers have hooks on their upper rims for grocery bag handles as the number of trash bags used in a week is approximately the same number of bags brought home from the grocery stores. Customers find that the 13-gallon bags at stores are cheaper than the odd sized ones and are more apt to be on sale. With the average trash emptied every night, the trash odor does not have time to accumulate in the plastic trash container.
